    Are you sure its using that much memory for the system or is it just cache?

    Do this in a terminal:
    Code:
    free -m
    Mine looks like this:
    Code:
                 total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
    Mem:          1008        880        128          0         38        595
    -/+ buffers/cache:        246        761
    Swap:         1023          0       1023
    That means Im only using 246MB of RAM. However 595MB is used for system cache which linux tries to use as much free RAM to cache things and frees cache when more system memory is needed. Not sure if that made sense. But, linux does this to make sure everything runs faster when you have free RAM to spare.
